When I've used polos before, they've always been 100% cotton jersey type. I don't use pique (rough type) for heat press. Maybe someone else knows a tip. Mike

I'm confused - what product are you using? An Opaque inkjet transfer paper for a desktop printer or a solvent print/cut material such as Solutions Opaque? Also what mask brand or backing color?

Thanks

Hi
the paper is inktra opaque from stahls
the backing is magic mask from stahls
the image has
details that I can't place manually so I use the mask.

Also If you have a front and back image on the tee using this paper how long would you do each side in the heat press?

Good day

We have two styles of Magic Mask - a low tack and medium tack. IF the medium tack seems to be too aggressive try the low tack. If the low tack isn't picking it up try the medium tack. The nice thing about both of these masks is that they are hot peel and not very heat sensitive which means you can complete the recommended heat application that the Inktra Opaque tech sheet calls for.

Press both sides of the shirt for the recommended application - you need to reach the melting point of the adhesive for both transfers.

hi this is the mask i bought
MC200M15000 CAD-CUT 20" Mag Msk 5.0/1.5 Clear
can you know from this is it the medium tack or low?

also i was able to use it to pick up the printed image but without removing the unprinted area and with peeling a tiny bit of the printed area with the weeder then putting the mask and picking it up.
but i think i could do with less tack.
good day

It is neither. This is actually the magic mask that Thermo Film/Grip is laminated to. This will be much more aggressive then the medium tack mask.

I would recommend that you try the medium tack if this is too aggressive for you.
